HC Deb 17 February 1908 vol 184 c455

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury if he is aware that in the Engineer's Department of the Board of Works, Dublin, there is a temporary clerical assistant who, at a salary of £300 per annum, was brought into the office a few years ago with the object of compiling the Board's rental, and that efforts are being made to have him placed on the permanent staff with pensionable rights; and, considering that the cost of works clerk in the same Department has only £200 per annum after a service of over twenty years, and that should the Treasury comply with the request to have the clerical assistant placed on the staff the cost of works clerk will be his subordinate, will he say what steps he proposes to take in the matter.


No application on behalf of the officer referred to has been received by the Treasury.
